Blues, Beer and BBQ

Blues Beer and BBQ logo - no year

The sixth annual Blues, Beer, & BBQ Concert Series returns to the Town of Cumberland for the summer of 2022!

 This popular summer concert series highlights a creative way to use pop-up event space to bring out town citizens and promote a sense of place.  We are grateful for our neighbor Retulled, 11623 E. Washington St., whose backyard we use to stage the shows.

The first BBB was held on June 3, 2017, at the newly created Saturn Space and was a huge hit!

The success of past BBBs was far beyond what we could have imagined.  The amount of positive feedback was astounding, and Cumberland has quickly become a local blues destination in central Indiana.  We now receive regular requests from Blues bands asking to book our next event. 

The Cumberland BBBs are unique in that they are family events. Most Blues venues only accommodate the over 21 crowds.  But with our public space, free admission, and adjoining park, the Cumberland BBBs are enjoyable for all ages and are unique in helping to create Blues fans for the future.  Our BBBs are attended by lifelong Blues fans as well as those who have never attended a single Blues concert.  There is truly not another destination in our area solely dedicated to the Blues the way Saturn Space is.   We always have a variety of delicious food and drink trucks so bring your appetite!

We have locked in the artists for our 2022 BBB’s and the schedule is below!

June 25th  Gordon Bonham / The Tad Robinson Band  6pm-10pm

July 30th  Gene Deer /  Harper & the Midwest Kind  6pm-10pm

August 27th  Sadie Johnson / King Bee and the Stingers / Blackjack Davey and the Rhythm Kings 4pm - 10 pm
*We will start early because Cumberland Community Day begins at 3 pm in the green space behind Town Hall.
